Gluten Free Honey Muffins Recipe #storyofhoney

This is a partnered post with The Motherhood and the National Honey Board. All opinions are my own.

Did you know there are over 300 varieties of honey in the United States? Me either, until I took a trip to South Dakota with the National Honey Board to learn about the story of honey.  Dealing with my family’s food allergies means I am always looking for simple, allergy friendly ingredients. Although I  keep a jar of honey in my cabinet, I hadn’t realized how honey is versatile and all natural! Guess what honey is made of? Honey. That’s it. A bottle of pure honey contains the natural sweet substance produced by honey bees from the nectar of plants or secretions of living parts of plants.  Nothing else. Plus, it’s naturally gluten free. I’ve been making honey recipes all week, much to the delight of my family, including these Gluten Free Honey Muffins, because honey can mask the bitterness of gluten-free flours, and this Fruited Honey Lemonade.

How to Use Skype when Traveling

This summer has been a whirlwind of travel for me. Between vacation, work and getting ready to move a kid into college, I have spend a lot of time on the go.  The sad fact is I worry while I am away.  Sometimes I need to check in on the kids and boss them around ask them politely to do something for me.  Sometimes I am worried about all the animals.  Are those rabbits digging out of their pen? Are the cats making a big mess in the house and no one is cleaning it up?  I can connect with them on the computer using Skype and see what’s happening at home.  This is a major plus because I can see if the house is clean enough for “mom standards” and not just “kid standards.”  But, Skype is not just for checking in at home anymore! I’ve learned several other ways to improve my travel experience.
